The UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative:

The goal of the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) is to address climate change through education, research, and developing solutions to transition to a more sustainable and resilient society. Scientific research must be the foundation for informing society about ongoing climate change and its potential future impacts. We also recognize that climate change is more than a scientific problem with a technical solution. The CCI is committed to examining the physical, ecological, environmental, social, economic, historical, and political facets of climate change impact, mitigation, and adaptation.

Specifically, the CCI is composed of:

The Student Environmental Alliance

The University of Massachusetts Lowell Student Environmental Alliance (SEA) promotes sustainability on campus and in the Greater Lowell area. The SEA is a student run organization that works with various organizations to help promote sustainable practices and educate others on the importance of environmental issues.
